Using both backward timeScheme/Crank Nicholson for LESHello OpenFOAM community ;),
I'm working on LES of turbulent channel flow and I have to question about the temporal discretization. 1) I want to achive fully second order accuracy in time using the backward timeScheme for the convective term of the Navier-Stokes Equations and the Cranck Nicholson scheme for the diffusive terms. If I select in the fvSchemes the timeScheme backward and I want to use this only for advection term while adopting the Crank Nicholson discretization for the diffusive term, then a simple advection/diffusion equation would rewrite as: fvm::ddt(rho,U) == fvm:div(phi,U)+fvm:kappa*0.5*(fvm::laplacian(phi) + fvc::laplacian(phi)) is it correct in OpenFOAM ? :confused: 2) How the backward time schemes automatically take in to account at the time t=0 of the initial condition on the two levels 0 and 00 which are requested by the backward timeScheme ? :confused: Thanks in advance Andrea Aprovitola |
